    I'm typing this sad farewell
    Breathe slowly
    Open your eyes

    Aluminum
    (Look what's in front of you)
    And ten eighty p
    (The screen)
    What do you say?
    (I say goodbye)
    Is the Victory still alive?
    (This is the) right choice
    I'm moving off alone
    Let's float to the One
    Goodbye to Victory

    Kudos if you can tell me what song this might be able to be sung to. Give ya a hint. Its a band from Raleigh, North Carolina and the song was released in 2012

    Finally caved. For $0, and only an extra $30/month on the data, I got myself a GSM HTC One. I still have the Victory, so I'll still pop in and say hullo, but its no longer my daily driver (and with the Play Edition One existing, its a cinch getting custom ROM's that 100% work).

    I think it's safe to say that the Dev community on the victory is nonexistent.

    It exists in pockets and corners. I might start poking hard at the Victory once I get a new hard drive for Christmas. 80GB was barely large enough for my nexus 10 work. I tried to download/work on/compile CM10/11 for the Victory and my hard drive imploded.

    It could be fun trying to port 4.4 to the Victory.

    T-Mobile on the HTC One? Didn't know they were peddling it for $0 down...

    Let me know how that goes. I'm not looking to switch for the foreseeable future even though JerryScript ditched us and moon got trolled off of here. I'm more than willing to be a tester for 4.4.

    At&T, actually, and it's a cinch to get it unlocked in two years. Also found out data is no longer a contract defined cost and I can adjust that any time with them.

    I guarantee you that 4.4 will take a long time to even get bootable

    Yep, things are kind of quiet. When I upgraded from the Motorola Triumph I was trying to pick between the Victory and the LG F3. I picked the Victory because it looked like there was more going on here...

    Well I'm still happy with the Victory. Just wish I was smart enough to fiddle with the ROMs.

    Dibblebill, Sorry to see you go, hope AT&T works well for you.

    It will for two years, then I can tow my snazzy One around.

    Sad to see you go, I hope that you enjoy your new phone😊
    That's the reason as to why I picked the victory as well.

    Looks like today will be my last day using my Victory. I have an HTC Desire at home waiting on me. I hope development doesn't die out completely cause the Victory is a great little phone.

    Definitely enjoying OmniROM on it. I hope to have the kernel sources for the Manta (Nexus 10), M7ATT (One) on my new ahrd disc so I can compare them to the Victory sources and start fiddling. We'll see what happens. No promises.
